Hello World!

Hello world! What is happenin’?!

I’m very happy to introduce my latest project and idea:

The DragonSpark Blog, Dawg! Written with Hugo and utilizing the Bilberry Theme.

Well, to be sure, the blog isn’t the idea, but it will be used to tell you about it in the next few rounds (and probably more 😇) of development.

So What’s Up?

I’ve had what you can say is an epiphany of sorts with my general direction in life. It wasn’t sudden, though. It took a lot of work and contemplation to get here.

In fact, you could say that I have been in a creative funk for a bit now, and I am embarrassed to say for how long. In an effort to jumpstart my creativity, I fell back on an old faithful: website development. That has led to me utilizing Hugo and producing this here blog to communicate my life to you.


What’s the Blog, Dawg?

Interestingly enough, I have been thinking about putting together my own blog for a while now, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on how I wanted to do it. As I said there has been a lot of contemplation on my part and I landed on some “pillars of interest” in my world.

My thought was to make a blog where each post could be divided into one of the following categories:

  • Business
  • Art
  • Technology
  • Life (philosophy)
  • Etc. (all the rest/remainder)

There have been so many times I have wanted to post something or a quick thought outside of 280 characters allotted on Twitter. Plus, Twitter is so noisy. A blog is basically a filtered view of important thoughts provided by a person or brand. I find Twitter is where the commentary/feedback occurs.

In any case, I finally was able to connect everything together when brainstorming my new idea and it culminated into the production of this blog.

Expectations of Schedule/Content

All that said, I am not entirely sure how often I will actually use this sucker. I wanted primarily to make it to get myself some personal development and creative momentum, which I feel I have accomplished.

But also, I now have a medium to utilize if I so wish. So, we’ll see how it pans out. I am not a big fan of setting expectations only to have them unfulfilled down the line.

The other consideration is that if I am spending time blogging, I am not developing my latest idea, The DragonSpark Experiment.

What is The DragonSpark Experiment?

Hey, glad you asked. 😆 It is an idea that I put together that feels legitimate. Or at least, feels legitimate enough to pursue it. It has a business model and everything, and the more I think about it, the more excited I get about it, so it’s been fun and is the primary motivating factor to establish this blog.

Getting back to not setting expectations, I do not like talking about details before developing them as I feel that jinxes things a bit. However, I will say that this idea squarely fulfills the Business, Art, & Technology pillars listed above. As far as Life, well, perhaps that will make itself known as time progresses.

Welcome Aboard, Dawg!

So, there you have it! I am aiming to keep this article short and sweet. Thank you for any interest you have in this sucker, and I welcome you aboard to The DragonSpark Blog, Dawg!
